“Rihanna 777” (Monday at 8 p.m. on Fox) is a new documentary that chronicles the singer’s concert tour that hit seven countries in seven days with seven shows to promote her seventh album. While we’re in a numerological frame of mind, here are five other shows, all with “7” in their titles:

v “77 Sunset Strip” (1958-64): Extremely cool drama about a pair of LA private eyes (Roger Smith, Efrem Zimbalist Jr.) often assisted by the show’s breakout character, the jive-talking parking-lot attendant Kookie (Edd Byrnes).

v “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” (1982-83): Three years before he made his mark as “MacGyver,” Richard Dean Anderson starred in this updated version of the 1954 musical.

v “704 Hauser” (1994): Yes, that’s the Queens address where Archie Bunker and family lived on “All in the Family” and “Archie Bunker’s Place.” A decade after the latter series ended, some dingbat at CBS came up with the idea of creating a sitcom in which a black family (headed by liberal dad John Amos, who clashed with conservative son T.E. Russell) now lived there. It was gone after five weeks.

v “Seven Days” (1998-2001): Jonathan La Paglia starred in this UPN sci-fi drama as a former CIA agent recruited by a secret government agency to take part in a time-travel project.

v “7th Heaven” (1996-2007): Wholesome family drama with Stephen Collins starring as a minister and head of the Camden clan, Catherine Hicks as his wife and Barry Watson and Jessica Biel as two of their seven kids. The show became TV’s longest-running family drama.

“THE AMAZING RACE” SEASON FINALE (8 p.m., CBS): All that panting and gasping you hear is coming from the final three teams as they chug toward the finish line in Washington, D.C. This still-enthralling reality series crowns another winner, but not before serving up some more rigorous challenges in Belfast, Ireland. Phil Keoghan hosts.

“Revenge” (9 p.m., ABC): On “Revenge,” Emily (Emily VanCamp) is about to plan her next sneaky move. Meanwhile, we’re still trying to get our heads around the fact that she and Daniel (Josh Bowman) are engaged again. Weird.

“Mad Men” (10 p.m., AMC): Can our dislike of Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) on “Mad Men” grow any more intense? We’ll see. Tonight, the slimy ad exec has an awkward run-in with a client.
